The TLR-1s HP (High Power), the subject of my review, is a 200 lumen flamethrower, powered by 2 CR123A batteries – delivering 1.75 hours of continuous lighting, which will extend your unaided eye visibility out to 450 meters, making it an ideal and cost effective way of equipping patrol officer carbines as well.

Streamlight’s line, the TLR
-1s HP uses apatented slide mount and ships with a completeset of locating keys that make it possible toattach the light on a variety of weaponplatforms.The housing is machined from aluminum and isO-ring sealed to provide IPX7 water resistance.Like its cousins in the TLR line the lens isconstructed out of a polycarbonate materialthat will not shatter and is scratch resistant.
The hallmark of Streamlight’s weapon
mountedlights is a tightly focused well collimated beam.This tradition is continued in the TLR-1s HP.The hotspot in the picture above tells the storymuch better than I can express it in words.

This is an extremelyimportant consideration for your safety andthat of your light.
Installing the TLR-1s HP on this 1911 is ill-advised!
Operating the HP weapon mounted lights is nodifferent than other TLR products. The light isequipped with an ambidextrous paddle switch(also available with a remote switch at a slightlyhigher cost), which provides access tomomentary, continuous or strobe operation.Activation of the strobe is accomplished by tworapid and sequential momentary presses of thepaddle switch.
